and the new information environment." but it seems that for the last 20 to 30 years we've been debating the after broadcast news scenario. how do you assess it? >> well, um, what we're trying to do in this book is put it into a little bit of an historical context. so our basic argument is that over the last 20 years there have been a number of changes, some of them slow, some of them more quick, that are changing the way in which we think about where we get public affairs information from. and the three big changes that we think are going on are the blurring of news and entertainment, so think the daily show -- although it's more than that -- the blurring of producers and consumers; there think about the impact that twitter and that youtube had in the iranian or the middle eastern arab spring revolutions, but also in american elections. and the third is the blurring of fact and opinion. we lived in an era prior to this where we thought there was a clear line between when journalists were presenting us factual information from a neutral or father or perspective -- fair perspective and wh

not been able to refinance in a low-interest rate environment, a missed opportunity. to reach homeowners who are more benefit for a high-interest loan they may hold. we very much support any assistance to reach that population. we have a program that is reaching homeowners whose mortgages happen to be held guaranteed by the g s es, we have seen very good take up in the refinancing assistance for providing underwater loan holders in that population but another group of homeowners to not have mortgage held that the gsts that have not been able to take advantage of this. we think it will be good for homeowners and good for the mortgage market and the economy. >> senator coburn. >> i'm glad to be on this committee. i have one question and i will submit the rest of my question to the record. this is for mr. cordray. mentioned financial literacy that needs to be approved. i wonder if you are aware how many financial literacy programs congress has running right now. >> i can tell you by law the vice chair of financial literacy education commission, we are coordinating with other agencies, 15 or
, a political environment that could, in fact, i in danger and threaten the civil freedoms of the united states, if all of a sudden the american people demand a response that congress feels it must respond and civil liberties could be the first thing that goes overboard. you mentioned the national defense authorization act. i think it's a very legitimate concern. one of the principal focu focusf our advisory panel, principle focuses was whether or not and how you use the military in the homeland. if you create a panic or a stress environment in the united states, there is a danger that the executive branch will simply respond and use whatever resources are available to it without regard to law or restrictions such as -- which, of course, we know a doctrine that prohibits the use of military and homeland. it was one of the five principal focuses of our advisory panel, our concern over this type of environment. the ndaa, the national defense authorization act in fact in our view does begin to move the military into a domestic responsibility and into a domestic function. this is not good. and that
, they will cripple our ability to grow our economy and provide an environment where all americans have the opportunity to lead healthy, safe and productive lives. that is what really brings us together here today because sequestration is about more than numbers on a ledger. there are real people behind these numbers and their lives and livelihoods are on the line. these cuts have consequences and every american will pay the price. with fewer food inspectors we will be more susceptible to foodborne illness. we will be at greater risk of deadly disease outbreak as public health laboratories close. with fewer air traffic controllers flights will be curtailed. classroom size will increase as teachers are laid off. national parks will close up. we will be less safe with fewer police on the streets and we will wait longer to cure debilitating diseases like cancer and alzheimer's. today ndd united is sending two members of congress and the white house a 72 page letter signed by 3200 national, state and local organizations including those represented here today to stop the political brinksmans
men have been told they are good at what they do especially in the male-dominated environment and encouraged to acquire different qualities. they are more self-deprecating but because politics is male-dominated women think they have to be twice as good but they use a different yardstick to gauge themselves. >> what about race? >> both sects and race are negative predictors so any kind of minority status to deviate from the norm, we see variation but political recruitment and close those gaps so if they encourage people to run for office they're likely to take them up especially among african-americans and latinos. >> host: professor, you give examples what is in example of somebody who developed an interest in policy and ran successfully? >> bill clinton is the most obvious. he writes out in the 16th year he decided it is an amazing experience because people are so interested to make a difference and me involved it is the most unfortunate experience but is exhilarating to not to want to do it again. >> host: tallis about your experience. where were you? what was the primary? >

places to be safer. in the short term, we can just decide to live in more urban environments. a wonderful study, you know, dick jackson famously asked the question in what sort of environment are you most likely to die in a pool of blood? that's how he puts it to his audiences. [laughter] and they compared murder by strangers, crime, to car crashes and added the two together. they looked at portland, vancouver and seattle in all three places, you were 15% safer in the grittiest inner city than the leafy suburbs because of the connell by nation of the two. -- combination of the two. and then finally asthma. who talk abouts about asthma? fourteen americans die every day from asthma. okay, that doesn't sound like a huge amount. it's three times the rate of the '90s and it's entirely due to motor exhaust. the sickest places in america are those places which are the most car dependent. and, you know, in phoenix you've got four months out of the year that healthy people are not supposed to leave their houses because of the amount of driving that's going on. so, again, what's the solution? the c
that livestock raising around the world takes a toll on the environment, et cetera. and yet you sell meat in whole fooleds stores, and we talk about this. some people would say, okay, well, here's john mackey talking about how we have to do the right thing and on the other side he is chasing profits. how do you put those two things together? >> guest: perfection is not one of the options we have, and i don't think of it so much as tradeoffs -- often times if you look for tradeoffs you'll find tradeoffs and that's the way the analytical mind works. i goes in there and tries to pick things apart and fine the tradeoff. i always say when you find the tradeoff in business it's a failure of imagination imagination, failure of creativity that hasn't yet found that win-win strategy. the example you use, the reality of the fact is that we're in business to serve our customers. and our customers wrote when they come into hour stores and if we're not prepared to sell them the food they want to buy, it's not a so much we're chasing profits, is that we're trying to create value for our customers and t
to financial firms as to what regulatory environment they can expect in some of these important areas so that they can get on with planning their businesses accordingly. so it's my hope and my expectation that with respect to the volcker rule, the capital rule, section 716 and many of the special prudential requirements for systemically important firms we will publish final rules this year. on volcker and the standardized capital rules in particular i think the agencies have learned a good deal from the formal comments and public commentaries addressed to these proposals. both required a difficult balance between the aimed comprehensiveness on one hand and ability to strait at firms and regulators on the other. inc. it is clear that both proposals lean too far in the direction of complexity. i would expect a good bit of change in the final rule makings on these subjects. indeed, these examples prove the wisdom of those who drafted the administrative procedure act many years ago whereby they set up a process that agencies issued proposals for notice and comment, received comments, conside
contends liberals are guilty of bullying their opposition and creating an environment that discourages political debate. this heritage foundation event is a little under an hour. [applause] >> pleasure to be here. i am a huge fan of heritage foundation, everything they do. one townauld.com was part of heritage foundation it occurs to become a syndicated column. i have a fourth book before "bullies" that is prime-time propaganda, fear and intimidation, i spoke here at heritage for that too. i am also the editor at large of bright barred news and hosted radio locally in los angeles and if you have and ipad and continue, 69 in the morning pacific time. let's talk about andrew bright bart, and mentor of mine. he had just seen a column that i wrote for the ucla daily bruin and as he was wanted is sitting in a greek taco joint in westwood, saw the column and e-mail me and at the time just to seek another half, we got together and became fast friends and one thing we talked about a lot is we knew each other, used to talk a lot about how the left were a bunch of bullies and what the left reall
have, you know, an intensification of the context. that is when the environment really became a partisan issue. that is when because that is when the business started lining up more business that it not want to run on the regulation wind up with republicans and then the environmental groups lined up with democrats, and that became much more than it had been the past. so there was the clinton impeachment. you can go on both sides. you can see how there is this back-and-forth, but i argue in the book. like gerrymandering, you know, you did this to me. i'm going to get you, but it is not as deep or is important as this inability in the 21st century for us to keep in balance these two parts of the american psyche, and i think, although i don't try to deal with them. i do believe that the anxiety that comes, especially for a man , along about of stagnation for the middle-class has a lot to do with why people are ineffective to an argument, makers and takers here. and there are people who are basically taking things from the government that they don't deserve. and in the 2012 electi
by september 11. in the short-term, -- we can just decide to live in more urban environment. in the long term, we can be more healthy. dick jackson's famously asked the question, what sort of environment or city are you most likely to die in a pool of blood? that is how he puts it to his audiences. they compared murder by strangers, crime, to car crashes and added the two together. in all three places you are safer in the gritty cities because the accommodation of those two. fourteen americans die every year from asthma, it's easy, everyday from asthma. it is three times the rate of the '90s and entirely due to automotive exhaust. ninety something percent. it's not what it used to be. finally, it is the environmental discussion thread which has turned 180 degrees and last 10 years. the vulcan project maps where our apartment for a prince are. red is bad, green is good. it looks like the united states sky at night. that carbon footprint, scott bernstein in chicago said what happened to the center of measuring co2 per mile? we start measuring co2 per household. well, they're only a certain numb
the principle kingdom. they are very norse. they remind you of the people who lived in a viking type environment and they are great horseman. she actually has to disguise herself and she plays a crucial role in a very late battle scene in the movie. if she isn't there, there's a saying about these horrible black writers pursuing frodo at one point. the leader of them cannot killed by a man. he is ultimately slain by a small hobbit who is not going to be allowed to fight either. in other words the feminist critique is there are women who can do things but that man can do and now here's where of some i've feminist fans would get annoyed. this is called liberal feminism. the idea is that you and i should have equal opportunities as should everyone and you might then try to excel in the ways that i try to excel. different variants were strands of feminism reject this saying no women actually are different and here we get into another storyline that is not in the movie but in the books. remember i mentioned those large fantastic living trees? they are all guys. they are all masculine. the wives left.
in male-dominated environments. and women tend to be not discouraged from operating that way, but they're encouraged to acquire different types of qualities and traits. and so they are a little more self-depracating, they doubt their confidence. but in addition, because politics is such a male-dominated arena, a lot of women think they have to be twice as good to get half as far. so they're doubting their qualifications, but they're also using a different yardstick by which to gauge them. >> host: is there a difference in race between white, black, latino? >> guest: there is. both sex and race are negative predicters, basically, of whether you will be interested in running for office. so any kind of minority status, any way that you deviate from the norm which is a white, male, heterosexual, 55-year-old man, we see variation. the good news, though, is that political recruitment can close those kinds of gaps. and so when electoral gatekeepers like party leaders or elected officials or political activists encourage people to run for office, they're very likely to take them up on that sug

tv, ben shapiro contends that liberals are guilty of bullying their opposition and creating an environment that discourages political debate. this heritage foundation event is a little under an hour. [applause] >> it's always a pleasure to be here: i'm a huge fan of heritage foundation, everything that they do, actually. they were the first outlet to pick up my syndicated column. i do have a fourth book before "bullies," i spoke here at heritage for that too. i'm also the editor at large of breitbart news, so if you're bored or have an ipad, you can tune in at 870.com. i want to start by talking about andrew breitbart. andrew was a mentor of mine. i met andrew when i was 17 years old. he had just seen a column i wrote for the ucla daily bruin, and he was sitting in a greasy taco joint, saw the column and then promptly e-mailed me. at the time, andrew was just the secret other half of the drudge report. we got together, we became fast friends. and one of the things that andrew and i used to talk about a lot because we knew each other for over a decade before his untimely death, he used to t
ott, tom created an environment built around using serious and objective and economical analysis to inform that indications policymaking functions at a critical time in american history took place. a junction where we would continue the communications and embrace our more traditional reliance on open entry in the competitive free enterprise system. at that important juncture, it was a division that lend themselves to technical and economic analyses, if you will. in the case of open skies, there were enough parking spaces to accommodate competitive entry also. they were not enough parking spot, but likewise committee argued that the propelling economies or scale for natural monopoly characteristics associated with the network and it would make competitive entry inefficient or unwise from a public policy perspective. a similar question and other crucial areas, such as the innovations market and the satellite mobile radio field, as i would look around the audience, i see so many people that were involved and played key roles in these studies and these issues. the contribution was no
more sustainability to look at the environment. now we have to learn, and that is quite a challenge for progressive politics that this is no longer working. and it's even no longer working when we were in power. and i'm a social democrat, and if you look at the years when we were in power, everyone is now single kid, we work economically very successful in those days because competitiveness of the german economy grew, but on the other hand, you have to admit the following. there are no better incomes, there are no better jobs, there's no better wealth of state and more social security. and this of course means that we have to rethink a couple of questions, and these are to my mind on the agenda. and i will make a quote of michael sandal for made the book these days, a book with a tough, what money can buy. and i give you two citations, to quote that are in the book come to my mind, arthur edward the first quote is the following. the most fateful change that unfolded during the past decade was not an increase in greed, it was the expansion of markets and have market values into areas

is different than the environment started 100 years ago but the editorial focus is to challenge our readers assumptions. from one perspective why wouldn't all media do that? and i think particularly in 2013 in the environment where it does not. on the women of the spectrum when i call the newspapers used to be the dominant news delivery method. it's now "the new york times" also the huffingtonpost.com, the daily beast. it gives you information about what happened jester date. it tends to be hit line driven cut it tends to be what you read at 9 a.m.. it's part of my media every day and part of everyone's media digest. on the other end of the spectrum it is a starkly -- historic the their fan magazines and it's been largely about storytelling wedding of things like "the new york times" magazine or the new yorker or other relief venerable new yorker books, other really venerable publications which take time to read and context and it pretty educated audience. for us we are trying to position ourselves in the space in between the two. the goal at the new republic is to do great writing, the typ
and presidents don't create jobs. what we do is create a nurturing environment for jobs and part of that nurturing environment is the postal service and the ability to deliver six days or seven days a week some of the good services that are needed and demanded. but the heart of what we need to do to be part of that and are chairing environment is to provide certainty and predictability in the postal service needs to be able to offer that to their customers. and i think employees as well. one of the best ways to grow an economy is to provide certain predictability in the postal service and i leave this hearing today not discouraged, not ready to throw up my hands but he needs. i was encouraged and there's a good spirit in this room and there's a good spirit of cooperation within this committee. i think we have got a lot of partners that are going to help us solve this problem. our society changes and the world changes in which we live and operate. we are going to solve it for now and hopefully put it in place so is the world changes in the market changes and the people change we w

isn't a bad thing. i think the parents want it and kids benefit from different learning environments and they do what they think is best for their kids. one of the issues with school choice is the issue of equity and if we care about equity and about providing a good option for every child there are the kids who don't have the parents the will be able to navigate all the traces and i think that we have found that in new york city as an example for high school there are hundreds of traces of schools that you can go to that you found regular high schools a lot of those have struggled because they tend to get the kids who don't make an active choice if that makes us cents. so it is just like desegregation there are problems that come with that that need to be dealt with and thought about and i think we can look back at desegregation and think okay this works and this doesn't work and really think about not necessarily the critique of the schools in the theater for ideas that happening now but as a way to make them better or more fossil but try to avoid repeating some of the same mistake
think kids are benefit from different learning environments and parents know best what would be good for their kid. one of the issue with school choice is the issue of equity, and if we care about equity and we care about providing a good option for eave child, there are the candidates -- the kids out there who don't eave a parent that will be able to navigate those choices and you found that in new york city as an example, where for high school there are hundreds of choices of schools you can go to. but you found that the large comprehensive high schools that are just a regular high school, those are really -- a lot of those have struggled because they tend to get the kids who don't make an active choice, if that makes sense. so just like desegregation, there are problems that come with it, that i think that need to be dealt with and thought about. and i think we can look back at desegregation and think, this worked and this didn't work, and really think about those. not critiqueing a school choice, and the other reform ideas that are happening now, but a way to make them better, at
thought livestock are not the world takes a toll on the environment, etc.. yet you meet in the stores and we talk about this some people would say okay well here is john mackey talking about how we have to do the right thing and this is a greater mission and purpose and on the other side he's chasing profits. how do you put those together? >> guest: perfection is not one of the options we have and i don't think it is a trade-off. oftentimes if you look for the trade-offs you will find trade-offs. that is the we the the amount of local mind works. it goes in and tries to take things apart and find the trade-off. i say when you find the trade-off in the business it is a failure of imagination and creativity that couldn't find or hasn't yet found that strategy. in in the example that you use, the reality of the fact is that we are in business to serve our customers and our customers vote when they come into our stores and if we are not prepared to sell them the food they want to buy it isn't so much that we are chasing profits as we are trying to create value for the customers and they d
, the environment would be destroyed, the world would come to an end by us building that pipeline. you know, we're multiple decades past. it's worked very well. there haven't been those disasters that people claimed. but on top of that, i know my friend from louisiana mentioned the environmental impact, and, you know, that it makes sense, the pipeline is the safest way to move oil but on top of that, you have a choice and the senator from north dakota made it very clear, that is you get the -- to refine it in china or the u.s. i don't know about anybody here but i would bet we all agree between the environmental standards, we have a better environmental record than china does in refinery and refining of oil products. so it makes sense for us to do it here. on top of that, i know and, again, from alaska which people travel there not just for the jobs and opportunity but the beauty of alaska. we have more visitors who want to see the pipeline, to visit the pipeline. when i went down on a rafting trip you're in nowhere land. unbelievable beauty but one of the last things you see when you come down
dislocation that could be catastrophic. i don't care whether you are talking the environment, economy, education, health, the prison system, the justice system. we have a large number, the ngo movement, non-governmental organization, public interest movement is wide and diverse but don't relate to this 50 years ago. what it doesn't have is a cohesive sense that they are working on related problems that ought to create a sense of movement that we are indebted to our history if our history were more accurate. i think history is about the future and the future is -- if the future is dangerous, then it will be less dangerous and more hopeful with a better sense we have of our history. but i am a historian. i guess you could expect me to say that. i am trying to put it in a different way. >> i want to thank you for the wonderful work you are doing. i have grandchildren i definitely want to share it with. my question is about another age group. as i look around this room, i see a number of white males of a certain age who probably lived through much of the times you are talking about at som
students from school environment. we want to keep them there. we understand all student are not perfect. we want to take you where you are and we're going to work with you. that's a basic fundamental shift in philosophy on how to deal with this behavior in school. and so these three things are perfect examples of what you can do in your own states if you want to take that the. then finally, i want to touch on some of you may have heard of the judge from clayton county, georgia. he's developed a model of collaboration grenadian juvenile courts, the school, the police, and the county social service agency and the county mental health. in essence what they've done is develop a protocol that requires all misdemeanors to be dealt with at school. no more referrals to the juvenile court for misdemeanors. on the first occurrence and on the second occurrence. the first occurrence is a warning. the second occurrence, you were referred to a panel that has community service providers in the county mental health and county social service agency, and you and your family history student, your family needs
to thank our chairman on the environment and public works committee, chairman boxer, for the briefing she held today with a number of scientists, including one who spoke specifically about the human health effects that we can see from climate change. climate change is threatening to erode the improvements in air quality that we have achieved through the clean air act. e.p.a. enforced emissions reductions have led to a decline in the number and severity of bad air days in the united states. these are the days that -- i know the presiding officer is familiar with because i'm sure they happen in connecticut as well as in rhode island -- where the air quality is so poor that it's unhealthy for sensitive individuals -- the elderly, infants, people with breathing difficulties -- to be outdoors. even healthy people are urged to limit their activities when out of doors. in rhode island, about 12% of children and 11% of adults suffer from asthma. both are higher than the national average. our rhode island public transit authority runs free buses on bad ozone days to try to keep car traffic down be

are quite concerned about the handoff that occurs in a post-acute environment where, essentially, there's no particular incentive for the acute care to really track what occurs when someone's post--acute. -- post-acute. recent attention to readmission strategy and whether we're seeing too many readmissions and really a disincentive to do so. but it's really the much broader question which is how do you encourage the full full array of providers that take care of a particular patient to begin to coordinate in much more closely in terms of the utilization of servicesesome so bundling i think is really as some of us think of an attempt to try and look at those incentives and to try and do a better job of helping patients manage throughout that full array of services so that from a preadmit to an acute care or episode to a postacute management over time that there's more attention given to those handoffs and more coordination in terms of the sharing of information so that, essentially, the patient isn't having to sort of reestablish the data set every time they see a different provider whet
